Far-right fanatic admitted plan to detonate home-made bomb in London mosque in revenge for Manchester Arena attack

A FAR-right fanatic admitted plotting a suicide bomb attack on a mosque in revenge for the Manchester Arena atrocity.

Steven Bishop, 41, wanted to avenge the death of the youngest victim, eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos.


Bishop, who has a history of alcohol and drug addiction, used the dark web to get material for a home-made bomb that he planned to detonate at the Baitul Futuh Mosque, in Morden, South London.

Police found it at his home when they raided following a tip off.

Shaven-headed Bishop admitted at Kingston crown court having explosive substances with intent to endanger life. He faces a life sentence.

In the wake of the Manchester attack he told a Facebook friend that Saffie’s suicide bomber killer Salman Abedi was “terrorist scum”.
